This June, it's all about love and rainbows all around. What better way to celebrate Pride month than by binge-watching all the LGBTQ-led films available on Netflix? And when we say all, we quite literally mean it because, let's be honest, there's not a lot to sift through—consider that as further proof that while Pride allows the community to shed their true colors and celebrate their authentic self, it's also a continued call for equality and for everyone's rights to be heard and seen, especially through big media platforms in the form of movies and TV shows.

Nevertheless, while we continue to rally for LGBTQ representation on our screens, below are 10 already existing movies on Netflix that we can enjoy now.

1| Handsome Devil
